We visited on a lunch time and despite the fact it was getting towards them taking the last orders we were welcomed and not rushed. Very quiet, in fact we were on our own at the end but we still felt comfortable as the staff were just so lovely. The food was gorgeous and it was hard to decide on... More

We ate here with friends who had visited previously and recommended we try it. Very impressed with the premises and the staff who manage that trick of being attentive, friendly and polite without being intrusive. Moving onto the food I have to rate it as excellent. Clean plates all round! Very nice wines at reasonable prices. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. Secreted away along an alleyway lit by fairy lights - it is truly magical. The location is wonderfully unique and exciting. The food lives up to expectation and much more. The menu is a special combination of delicious smells and flavours. The presentation of the food and service are superb. As good as anything... More

Fantastic food. Monday night £38 for two steaks, salad and chips and a delicious bottle of merlot. So reasonable. Staff were professional and friendly. Would definitely recommend this place.

During a weekend trip to York, we Tripped 3 restaurants that myself,partner & 2 friends would eat at on Saturday night. So glad that this little restaurant was the preferred choice, as the food and staff made for a perfect evening. The menu is small, but the specials board is packed with mouth watering delights. Starters of home made scotch... More

We dined here on our recent trip to York having been recommended to us. We were not disappointed! The food is great quality and tastes great. Of particular note was the Roast Lamb Shank with honey roast parsnips and sweet potato champ. The only real negative is that the portion sizes may be a little large for some, though given... More

This is a very good restaurant, one of our top 3 in York. Fabulous service (we went on a very busy night - Valentines but the service was excellent). Lovely food and ambience. Its tucked away down an alleyway but well worth finding. Looking forward to our next night there again soon.
